You think it’s easy to write a murder? Just ask the Marquis Crossing Ladies Society for the Arts. They decide to do just that, especially when they find out they have to pay royalties to do someone else’s play. “Anybody can write a murder,” Emma tells the others, and Opaline immediately begins to try to strangle the other members “just to figure out how to do it.” The ladies soon find themselves writing an “operatic murder mystery dinner theater with possible audience participation.” Then two actual convicts on the lam decide the best place to lay low is with the ladies, who drag them into the play. A wise-cracking fast paced comedy where no one can tell the loaded guns from the unloaded ones.
